Leggett & Platt Reports 3Q Results

CARTHAGE, Mo., Oct. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • 3Q sales grew 14%, to $1.24 billion
  • 3Q EPS was $.74, an increase of $.07 vs. 3Q18; 3Q adjusted1 EPS of $.76, up $.10 vs 3Q18
  • 3Q cash flow from operations was a strong $213 million
  • 2019 EPS guidance raised: EPS of $2.40-$2.55; adjusted EPS of $2.48-$2.63

Diversified manufacturer Leggett & Platt reported third quarter 2019 sales of $1.24 billion, a 14% increase versus third quarter last year.

  • Acquisitions added 16% to sales growth (primarily ECS)
  • Organic sales were down 2%:
    • Volume down 1% (exited business -4%)
    • Absent declines from exited business, volume up 3%
    • Raw material-related selling price decreases and negative currency impact -1%

Third quarter EBIT was $144 million, up $20 million or 16% from third quarter last year, and adjusted1 EBIT was $148 million, a $24 million increase.

  • EBIT benefited from:
    • ECS acquisition
    • Lower raw material costs
    • Improved earnings performance in Furniture Products
  • EBIT margin was 11.6% and adjusted1 EBIT margin was 11.9%, up from 11.4% in the third quarter of 2018

Third quarter EPS was $.74.  Third quarter adjusted1 EPS was $.76, an increase of $.10 versus third quarter 2018.  The increase reflects higher EBIT and a lower tax rate ($.03/share) partially offset by higher interest expense ($.06/share).

Restructuring: 

  • Third quarter included $4 million (pretax), or $.02 per share, of restructuring-related charges
    • $3 million cash and $1 million non-cash
  • Full year restructuring-related charges are expected to be approximately $14 million ($.08/share)
    • $7 million cash and $7 million non-cash

CEO Comments
President and CEO Karl G. Glassman commented, "Sales grew 14% in the third quarter, primarily from the ECS acquisition.  Sales were stronger in Automotive, U.S. Spring, and Work Furniture but this improvement was more than offset by planned lower volume from business exited in Fashion Bed and Home Furniture and weak trade demand in the Industrial Products segment.

"Third quarter adjusted1 EBIT increased a notable $24 million over third quarter last year, primarily from the ECS acquisition, lower raw material costs (including LIFO benefit), and improved earnings performance in Furniture Products. 

"Our Automotive business grew 8% versus third quarter 2018, exceeding the global market by over 1,000 basis points.  This year we should exceed market growth by 600–700 basis points.  While we remain confident in continued strong performance, ongoing disruption in the global market makes it difficult to predict our relative performance with precision.  Accordingly, we are moving away from our specific goal of exceeding market growth by 1,000 basis points, although we expect to significantly outperform the market over the long term. 

"Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced final dumping duties on mattresses imported from China that range from 57% to 1,732%.  Notably, approximately 90% of Chinese mattresses are now subject to antidumping duties in excess of 160%.  We expect the U.S. International Trade Commission to make a final determination in this matter no later than the first week of December.  In our U.S. bedding businesses, we continue to see strong demand.  U.S. Spring sales dollars were up 6%. Finished mattress units were up 28% in the third quarter, including ECS's year-over-year growth."

Debt and Cash Flow

  • Debt was 3.15x trailing 12-month pro forma adjusted1 EBITDA; we expect to be at our target level of debt to trailing 12-months adjusted EBITDA of approximately 2.5x by the end of 2020
  • Operating cash flow was $213 million in the third quarter, an increase of $86 million versus third quarter last year

Dividends

  • Leggett & Platt's Board of Directors declared a $.40 third quarter dividend, two cents higher than last year's third quarter

Stock Repurchases

  • Repurchased only .2 million shares at an average price of $40.00; primarily shares surrendered for employee benefit plans
  • Issued .4 million shares through employee benefit plans and option exercises
  • Shares outstanding at the end of the third quarter were 131.6 million

2019 Guidance

  • Full year 2019 sales guidance narrowed, and EPS guidance raised
  • Sales are expected to be $4.7-$4.8 billion, an increase of 10-12% versus 2018
    • Organic sales are expected to decline -3% to -5%, including -3% from exited business
    • Acquisitions should add 15% to sales
  • EPS is expected to be $2.40-$2.55, including approximately $.08 per share of restructuring-related costs
  • Adjusted EPS is expected to be $2.48-$2.63
  • ECS is expected to be neutral to EPS in 2019
  • Based on this guidance range, EBIT margin should be 10.7-11.0%; adjusted EBIT margin should be
    11.0-11.3%
  • Operating cash flow should exceed $550 million
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $160 million, versus prior guidance of $180 million
  • Implied full-year effective tax rate of approximately 22%, versus prior guidance of 24%
  • Prior Guidance:
    • Sales: $4.7-$4.85 billion
    • EPS: $2.30-$2.50; adjusted EPS: $2.40-$2.60
  • Implied 4Q Guidance:
    • Sales are expected to be $1.1-$1.2 billion
    • EPS is expected to be $.57-$.72, including approximately $.02 per share of restructuring-related costs
    • Adjusted EPS is expected to be $.59-$.74

LIFO

  • In the third quarter of 2019, lower steel costs resulted in a LIFO benefit of $7.6 million (pretax)
  • In the third quarter of 2018, increasing steel costs resulted in LIFO expense of $6.0 million (pretax)

SEGMENT RESULTS – Third Quarter 2019 (versus 3Q 2018)

Residential Products

  • Total sales grew 41%; acquisitions added 38%
  • Organic sales increased 3%
    • Volume was up 4%, primarily from continued market share and content gains in U.S. Spring
    • Raw material-related price decreases and currency impact reduced sales 1%
  • EBIT increased $10 million, with earnings from the ECS acquisition (after $12 million of amortization expense) partially offset by $2 million in restructuring-related charges and other factors

Industrial Products –

  • Total sales decreased 17%, from weak trade demand for steel rod and wire (-12%) and raw material-related selling price decreases (-5%)
  • EBIT decreased $3 million, primarily from lower trade steel rod and wire volume and $1 million in restructuring-related charges, partially offset by an earnout of $2 million related to a prior-year divestiture

Furniture Products –

  • Total sales were down 8%
  • Volume decreased 8%, primarily from our decision to exit Fashion Bed and planned declines in Home Furniture, partially offset by growth in Work Furniture and Adjustable Bed
  • Raw material-related selling price increases were offset by a negative currency impact
  • EBIT increased $11 million, primarily from improved pricing and lower fixed costs attributable to restructuring activity, partially offset by $1 million in restructuring-related charges

Specialized Products –

  • Total sales increased 6%
  • Volume was up 7%, from growth in Automotive
  • Currency impact, net of raw material-related price increases in Hydraulic Cylinders, decreased sales 1%
  • EBIT increased $1 million, primarily from higher volume in Automotive partially offset by underperformance at our French Aerospace operation

6Management and investors use these measures as supplemental information to assess operational performance.

7The non-GAAP adjustments affected various line items on the income statement. Details by quarter:  4Q 2018: $4.4 million COGS, $19.6 million SG&A, $11.9 million other expense, $3.2 million interest expense.  1Q 2019: $2.4 million COGS, $0.9 million SG&A, $3.9 million other expense.  3Q 2019: ($0.9) million COGS, $4.7 million other expense.

84Q 2018 excludes $3.2 million of financing-related charges recognized in interest expense.

9Management and investors use this ratio as supplemental information to assess ability to pay off debt.  These ratios are calculated differently than the Company's credit facility covenant ratio.

10The Leggett and ECS pro forma adjusted EBITDA for the 12 months ended March 31, June 30,  and September 30, 2019 is presented in the table below.  Because the increase in total debt from December 31, 2018 to September 30, 2019 was directly attributable to the ECS acquisition, we believe it is more meaningful to investors to include ECS's pre-acquisition adjusted EBITDA for the trailing 12 months ended March 31, June 30, and September 30, 2019 in the total debt / 12-month adjusted EBITDA calculation.
